Most popular brands – May 2021

Top 20 most searched-for new car reviews by brand on whatcar.com

This month’s biggest mover is Seat, which falls from 14th to 17th position this month despite offering some of the largest Target Price discounts of any manufacturer.

Indeed, customers can currently save up to £3266 on the class-leading Seat Leon family hatchback, and up to £5005 on the Tarraco large SUV. Elsewhere, improving discounts see Citroen coming back into the top 20 after being absent last month, while Vauxhall and Nissan both fall outside the top 20. Both brands are actually offering some of our highest percentage savings at the moment, including a 19.2% saving on the outgoing Nissan Qashqai in 1.3 DiG-T N-Connecta form, and 16.6% off the Vauxhall Grandland X in 1.6 Hybrid Elite Nav Auto guise. Those discounts net buyers savings of £4824 and £6734 respectively.
